Ann M. Lagges, Ph.D., HSPP
Assistant Professor of Clinical of Psyhology in Clinical Psychiatry


Personal Statement  My primary focus is psychology education.  As director of the pre-doctoral internship program in clinical psychology, I am committed to working with my colleagues to provide the highest quality training experience for our next generation of psychologists. As director of our continuing education program for psychologists, I have the opportunity to help ensure that our psychology faculty, and psychologists in the community, have the opportunity to stay up to date on developments in the field.   My clinical and clinical teaching efforts include the broad areas of child and pediatric psychology, but as co-chief of the Mood Disorders Clinic at the Riley Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Clinic, I spend a significant amount of time working with that subpopulation.  I supervise a weekly training clinic, as part of the Mood Disorders Clinic, in which psychology fellows, interns and practicum students along with psychiatry residents and fellows learn to implement evidence-based interventions with children, adolescents and their families.
